Every other year, large numbers of pink salmon travel the White River to spawn. In 2011, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Seattle District ran 24/7 operations at their trap and haul facility in Buckley, Wash., in order to move more than 600,000 salmon, including a number of Endangered Species Act listed fish. The district is training staff and mobilizing equipment to once again get ready to move the fish as they make their journey up the river. Aug. 10 will mark the first weekend of the 2013 season when fish numbers demand trap and haul operations are up and running. Soon the district will be working around the clock to ensure the fish get where they need to go. This video shows just how we do that.
